Light and travel analogy

I also wonder, if a vehicles head lights are on, and the vehicle is traveling at 100 mph is the light emitted also traveling 100 mph faster then if the vehicle were parked?... Or what prevents that light from going faster?

Science says light has a certain speed. But what makes that speed certain?

If I throw a ball at 60 mph while standing on a car going 100 mph then the ball is going 160 mph.

Is light really stuck at a certain speed like sound waves?
Sound waves and light really have no similarity.

Your analogy?
